Dear Parents & Students,

Reminder: Please make sure you go online and reapply for meal benefits before September 23rd to assure your child will keep receiving free or reduced price meals for 2016-17. If you have already received a letter from my office dated 7/26/16 informing you your children were approved through direct certification, you do not need to reapply. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CRIM PARENTS – ALL STUDENTS ENROLLED AT CRIM ELEMENTARY WILL RECEIVE FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH AGAIN THIS YEAR.  YOU DO NOT NEED TO FILL OUT AN APPLICATION. The USDA approved our district’s application for Crim to participate in the Community Eligibility Provision.  This Provision is part of the 2010 Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act which provides this option to schools where over 40% of the enrolled students qualify automatically for free meals through the direct certification process.  You may still place money for snacks, milk or extra food on your child’s account, if desired.

SCHOOL FEE & SPORTS FEE WAIVER – IMPORTANT NOTICE

If you are approved for free or reduced meals for the current school year, you have two options when it comes to obtaining fee waivers.  You may print out your approval letter and show it to the school official, or you must have checked the Yes to Share info box on the online application.  If you did not check that box, you will need to complete a separate Yes to Sharing Info form.  This form is available in your school office and also online at www.bgcsfoodservice.com under the Parent tab.  YOUR FEES WILL NOT BE WAIVED WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT TO SHARE INFO.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact me.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CRIM PARENTS:

If your children went to Crim this year, but will be moving up to the Middle School or attending a different building, you will need to complete a free & reduced form online if you don’t receive a notice in the mail notifying you they are directly certified.  Those letters will be mailed from my office the first week of August. There is no carryover or grace period and the Middle School is not a Community Eligibility Provision school.


Have a safe and happy summer!

 

If you have questions or concerns, please contact me.
